Winter is still blasting through parts of the country. Building snowmen and snowball fights are fun, but cold weather is also the perfect time for family movie nights! Light a fire, grab some blankets, pop the popcorn, and find a few movies the entire family will love. Here are some creative ideas to add some fun to movie night!
Let the Kids Pick the Movie
If you can’t decide what to watch, let the kiddos take over the remote! This is a fun way to let your kids participate and keep everyone happy.
Make a Popcorn Topping Bar
Instead of regular buttered popcorn, try some fun toppings like chocolate, cookies, sprinkles, chili powder, caramel, cheese, M&Ms, taco seasoning. If you can’t agree, let each person top their own portion of popcorn.
Build a Pillow Fort
Nothing says “movie night” like a good, old fashioned pillow fort. Set one up in your living room or anywhere! Even if you can’t set one up around your TV, you can set up a projector from Buydig.com and display the movie on a blank wall or sheet you’ve hung on a wall!
Make it a Game
Use a creative game like movie night bingo to make movie night game night. This is a great way to discuss themes and lessons in movies you watch together on your TV from Buydig.com.
Make Homemade Pretzels
Instead of popcorn, make something fun like homemade pretzels! They’re a bit of a project, which makes them the perfect family activity. Start your movie on your Blue Ray player when you put them in the oven, and they’ll be ready to enjoy before you know it.
Invite Over Some Friends
A movie night is a great excuse to spend time with other families. Invite over a family from church or your neighbors and settle down to a movie that has something for everyone. There’s no limit to the number of guests you can invite in from the cold. With your home theater system, there won’t be a bad seat in the house!
There is nothing better than curling up on the couch in front of the fire surrounded by the people you love, drinking hot chocolate, and watching a movie on a cold and snowy night!
